Northchapel show gets ‘better and better’

THERE were more than 290 entries across all the classes when Northchapel vegetable and flower show took place.

Judges described the standard of the exhibits as ‘excellent’ and said the show ‘just gets better’ which, said show spokesman Sarah Bound, ‘is a great credit to all the enthusiastic gardeners, cooks, flower arrangers and children who took part in the event’.
